The arrival of spring brings great news for our OETA family. A new statewide poll shows Oklahomans consider OETA the state’s most trusted institution, most valuable service and most approved media provider. The OETA Foundation recently commissioned OU POLL to measure OETA’s performance and value as judged by our most important stakeholder – YOU. I am so grateful to you for your consistent support of OETA and the work we do each day. OETA was created to provide you with content that inspires lifelong learning, community building and curiosity about the world we share. We take our mission seriously and know that none of it is possible without you. While I’m proud that you help make OETA the most watched PBS station in the country, this is valuable only if we are connecting you with content that makes an impact. The results of this study show that we are on the right track. I am happy to share the full poll information and results with you. Please visit www.oeta.tv and click on the Reports link. And thank YOU, once again, for making it all happen. Yours Truly,

Dan Schiedel OETA Executive Director

Please allow me to take this moment to introduce myself. I’m Daphne Dowdy and I have the great pleasure of joining you as part of the OETA family. I come to you by way of PBS stations in West Texas and Miami, Florida but I grew up watching OETA as a kid in Tulsa. In fact, Big Bird taught me to count to 10 in Spanish; Dad and I bonded over Austin City Limits and This Old House; and after Dad passed away, Mom and I shared meaningful evenings with BJ and The Movie Club. Thank you for making OETA available for me as a kid and young adult. I’m thrilled to do my part now to repay your generosity. On to business. You’ve likely noticed a few changes here in Odyssey. Our printer closed up shop so we are taking the opportunity to upgrade our look and content a bit. We hope to do more so, please, let us know what you think at info@oeta.tv. A big thanks to the 6500 people who called in or clicked online to contribute during Festival. Final numbers are in and you made this the best Festival since 2007 at $1,061,500 blowing away our $1M goal. What a way to honor the powerful educational service OETA Members have built over 58 years. YOU are positively affecting Oklahoma in a profound way. Thank you.

ON THE COVER

WELCOME HOME May is packed with specials honoring our veterans, including the compelling new series, COMING BACK WITH WES MOORE. Follow the U.S. Army veteran as he chronicles the lives of different soldiers as they attempt to reintegrate into society, establish new identities and – for many – find a new mission.

U.S. Army veteran and best-selling author Wes Moore has found a new mission – helping his fellow veterans reintegrate into society and helping citizens learn how to help make reintegration easier. His new series, COMING BACK WITH WES MOORE, reveals the experiences of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans as they return home to their families and society. The series recounts Moore’s search for answers to some of the most difficult questions related to returning from war. “We want to better humanize reintegration by taking the audience into the lives of these men and women as they return from war,” said Moore, who is an Army combat 4

WHEN COAL WAS KING

OETA goes BACK IN TIME to a time when coal brought big money to Oklahoma.

NATURE Wednesdays @ 10pm

W

hen people speak about energy in Oklahoma today they refer to oil and gas, but a century ago coal was king and Oklahoma had plenty. J.J. McAlister attracted the railroads into Indian Territory with the promise of cheap and abundant coal to fuel their expansion westward – making McAlister and a handful of coal barons very rich. For the men and boys who went into the mines and dug in the dark it was a dirty and dangerous way to eke out a meager living. Most miners would go to work before sunrise and come home after dark, waiting till Sunday to see the light. OETA’s historical documentary series BACK IN TIME explores a period before statehood when the promise of steady pay brought immigrants from Europe to work in mines that were among the most dangerous in the world. Communities flourished in the sunshine even as lives were lost in the darkness below, as workers struggled with the backbreaking job of hauling to the surface ton after ton of “Oklahoma Coal.” Don’t miss an allnew BACK IN TIME, “Oklahoma Coal,” airing Thursday May 15 at 7 p.m., with special encores on Sunday May 25 at 11 a.m. and Thursday May 29 at 7 p.m. For more episodes of BACK IN TIME, visit OETA’s online video library at video.oeta.tv. You can also find more OKLAHOMA STORIES on the OETA YouTube page at youtube.com/MyOETATV. WWW.OETA.TV

BEWARE THE SWARM & LEAVE IT TO BEAVERS!

D

id you know scientists consider beavers as brilliant hydro-engineers? On Wednesday May 14 at 10 p.m., NATURE explores why these natural builders are being recruited to accomplish everything from finding water in a bone-dry desert to recharging water tables and coaxing life back into damaged lands. A growing number of scientists, conservationists and grass-roots environmentalists have come to regard beavers as overlooked tools when it comes to reversing the disastrous effects of climate change and world-wide water shortages. Once valued for their fur or hunted as pests, these industrious rodents are seen in a new light through the eyes of this novel assembly of beaver enthusiasts and “employers” who reveal the ways in which the presence of beavers can transform and revive landscapes. Then on Wednesday May 21 at 10 p.m., NATURE looks at some of the most extraordinary swarms on the planet, including a view from inside a locust swarm, mayflies along the Mississippi, 17-year cicadas, and brine fly hatches over Lake Victoria. Superswarms of finch-like quelea in Africa merit attempts at control through assaults on their roosts, while aggressive swarms of silver carp in North American seem able to overcome any kind of restraint. Dangerous swarms of killer bees, however, can be controlled to the point that they can be worn as a human bee suit. But beyond the power of sheer numbers, increasingly complex and organized swarms eventually give rise to swarm intelligence that allows complex decisions to be made. Be sure to view the complete NATURE schedule on Page59. ODYSSEY | MAY 2014

NOVA: WHY SHARKS ATTACK

Wednesday May 7 at 8 p.m. In recent years, an unusual spate of deadly shark attacks has gripped Australia, resulting in five deaths in 10 months. At the same time, great white sharks have begun appearing in growing numbers off the beaches of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, not far from the waters where Steven Spielberg filmed Jaws. What’s behind the mysterious arrival of this apex predator in an area where it’s rarely been seen for hundreds of years? Are deadly encounters with tourists inevitable?

100 YEARS OF OKLAHOMA EXTENSION

Thursday May 8 at 7 p.m. Discover the history of the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service and the people and programs that make it a vital service to Oklahoma today. Early Extension agents crisscrossed the state in horses and buggies, trains and the occasional Model-T, showing farmers and ranchers a new type of agriculture. Those early days were the start of boys’ and girls’ clubs, which eventually became the 4-H program, and home demonstration programs for families. Today’s Extension service is still a vital service in Oklahoma, providing scientifically based and unbiased research to agricultural producers, helping them increase yields and be good stewards of the land, as well as overcome obstacles like pests, diseases and drought. Short courses such as Master Cattleman help producers improve efficiency and profitability of their operations. Local educators can provide information on everything from gardening to bedbugs, tailored for their part of the state. Take a look back at the start of the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, visit with some of the people and programs that serve Oklahomans today, and see how Extension will be there in the future for the people of our state.
